Review of Dr. Buchalter


Sees too many patients and thus loses focus of what’s important. Needs to be more detail oriented and listen to the concerns/needs of his patients....

Review of Dr. Buchalter

- |

Certainly not the most compassionate doctor and definitely would not describe him as a patient advocate. Too rigid in treatment approach. Unfortunately, it’s the only game in town...

Review of Dr. Fairleigh

- in AL |

2 hour wait time, told me he would refill my pain meds of 30 which last me from 3 to 6 months, but when i went out to the reception area to wait for my prescription they told me he wasn't going to refill them, no explanation, yet i still have to got to PT and he still wants me to have shots, nor does he explain in detail what is going on, and on top of that he has no sense of humor never laughs at my jokes

Review of Dr. Larkins

- in Miramar Beach |

Worse medical experience Ive ever gone through. Dr Larkins and his staff just dont care. It's all about the money and not the patient. They herd you through like cattle and talk to you like a NUMBER.. Beware.. Do not go to this facility..!!

Review of Dr. Buchalter


It’s all about the money with him. If you can’t afford a Dr. visit anytime you need meds he won’t phone them in

Review of Dr. Griffee

- in Navarre , FL |

Dr. Griffee has given me back my life!!! She manages my pain so I can participate in life again. She is brilliant, professional, yet extremely caring and friendly. Everyone that I have sent to see her, is equally pleased. Dr. Griffee will make you feel important and truly listens to your concerns. Don't wait!! Go see her!! Patricia Henson

Review of Dr. Griffee

- in Navarre, FL |

At first, I loved Dr. Griffee, and actually did refer people to her, she seemed very caring. Long story, but her dismissing me, I would call legit, despite her giving me the kiss of death, that was not legit. 1 star, is her not noting pertinent information SHE said in my records (Can prove through other Drs). She also quite obviously copy and pasted. I can, through UDT results prove at least one of these through UDT reports. She also fails to note pertinent other Drs notes addressed to her.

Review of Dr. Boerjan

- in Pensacola, FL |

I think a lot of this Chiroprator and his Terapist care was amazing and very helpful. His place of employment does them no justice. I’m leaving a poor review due to their billing department. Totally has me seeking another Doctor. They bill 4 months later than service, and are no assistance helping through my insurance providers and want to add late fees after trying to make payments over the phone numerous times. I would refer if he worked for different place of business for another company

Dr. Griffee has been amazing in her ability to diagnose and treat my issues. She has given me a much better quality of life. I cannot thank her enough for helping me.

Review of Dr. Fairleigh

- in Atmore |

He's a great doctor. He truly cares. I hate that he's bought into the so-called opioid crisis, however. He's cut my meds in half and taken some away. I'm in a worse position than when I walked in several years ago. But there's nothing I can do about it.
